She’s Got You Covered

My heart sank that day when a visitor sat on the arm of my antique sofa.  The arm hung down, broken and useless. I thought it was the end…but there was hope !  My friend, Katie Bovie, an Objects Conservator at Alpha Furniture Restoration 510.658.8579 recommended the best person to fix it.  That was my lucky day.

Marni Meister is the sole proprietor of a custom upholstery business in Oakland, California.  She can be reached at 510.520.6030 or

Marni’s love of antiques spurred her interested in upholstery. After apprenticing with an upholsterer, she opened her own business in 2000 and named it “M Studio.” She specializes in furniture reupholstery and custom sewing for the home. Marni always carries a large selection upholstery fabrics. That’s how I found the gorgeous teal
fabric which she suggested to cover not just the repaired sofa, but the matching chair as well. Marni attended school in NYC and studied Fine Arts. She has a BFA in sculpture.

Marni is also a long time volunteer with a greyhound rescue and adoption group, “Greyhound Friends For Life”  “After adopting my first retired racing greyhound, Reggie, I became passionate about helping this sweet, docile breed find loving homes.” said Marni.

Marni has a heart of gold – and an eye to match.
